Qurans Desecrated by Muslims-Again

Remember the fuss about the plastic shopping bag filled with burned Qurans left outside a building in Blacksburg, Virginia? The American-Arab Anti Discrimination Committee, & CAIR, screamed bloody murder, demanding local police take officers off of murder & robbery investigations to work on this case. It was called a hate crime, reflective of anti-Muslim bias.

The truth if the matter has come to light, & it is a far different story.
A Muslim Virginia Tech student says he was the person who left a burned Quran at a local mosque last month, saying it had been damaged in a fire and he hoped it could be given a respectful disposal.
The student contacted police last week, saying he was going to be traveling abroad and didn't know what to do with the Quran, which had been burned in a 2004 house fire, police Lt. Bruce Bradberry said Tuesday. The student said he placed the book and other fire-damaged materials in a bag and left the bag at the Islamic Center with a note, which apparently blew away.

At least this wasn't an intentional hoax, as was the case when two Sikh teenagers fabricated a story about being attacked by five men who yanked off their turbans and cut off their hair in order to avoid being held responsible for cutting off their own hair, which is a violation of their religious principles. This was originally attributed to anti-Muslim bias by the MSM.

These cases provide more evidence to the growing list of reasons to eliminate these ridiculous "hate crime" laws.

I am sure that every Muslim in the world has heard of the burned Qurans story thanks to Al-Jazeera, as well as the heavy rotation it received in the American media, but why the lack of similar coverage for the truth? This is no different from the infamous Newsweek case of the flushed Qurans, which ended up having been done by the detainees, not the guards. But, the media frenzy & rioting was over the false allegations & very little attention was paid to the real story.

Also, where is the apology from CAIR & the American-Arab Anti Discrimination Committee? They always demand apologies from everyone, & now that the shoe is on the other foot, how about practicing what you preach.

Roving Plame, Diddling Rall

Ted Rall says that Karl Rove is worse than Osama. Why, because of the story alleging him to be the source of the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame. This, in Rall's words, makes Rove a "collaborator", and,
"In war collaborators are more dangerous than enemy forces."

Plame's friends, in a NYT article, say that she guards her privacy in order to do her job & is known by her married name in her professional & personal lives. They cite her posing in sunglasses & scarf for a Vanity Fair article as evidence of her fastidiousness. It claims that the Wilsons lead a "low-key social life."

But who's smiling, full frontal, colored photo should appear on the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, right below P. Diddy's: that of Ambassador Joe Wilson & wife Valerie Plame of course. The photograph in question was taken at the Tribeca Film Festival, who's attendees included Robert deNiro, Nicole Kidman, Barry Diller, Willem Dafoe, John McEnroe, and many others in its publicity hungry list.

No word yet on the storm of MSM outrage over the incident.
